About This Event

“Your body’s ability to heal is greater than anyone has permitted you to believe.”

Eat Real to Heal is a step-by-step method that shows you the art and science of using food as medicine to reverse chronic disease, one bite at a time.

This new way of eating -and living- based on a 100-year-old metabolic nutritional therapy, will rebuild your metabolism, kick-start your immune system, regenerate your tissues and heal your body from the inside out. Take your health into your own hands and learn to prevent and reverse cancer and other chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol, skin conditions, Crohn’s, ME, allergies, asthma, arthritis, chronic pain, infertility, eye conditions and other autoimmune disorders and degenerative conditions. With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians now being diagnosed with cancer and heart disease in their lifetime, 1 in 4 being diagnosed with other lifestyle-induced chronic illnesses such as Type II diabetes, autoimmune disorders, infertility, and more, the time is now to take your health back.

More and more medical research shows that we can cut these rates by 90% and more by adopting a plant-strong lifestyle and engaging in moderate exercise. Learn a new definition of what really constitutes “healthy food.” Never again will you want to start a diet or a cleanse after having experienced the Eat Real to Heal Lifestyle.

You can expect to:

Eliminate chronic pain and inflammation

Reverse and prevent disease

Return to youthful energy levels

Enjoy restful sleep

Lose weight

Achieve optimal health so you can live a long and thriving life!

Hollyhock definitely captured my heart. The food is wonderfully balanced and full of flavour. The garden is mesmerizing and the staff is always welcoming with a smile. Accommodation was comfortable and clean. There is something enchanting about this place that is calling me back ~ Monica G
